Arabah: Plain, in the Revised Version of
(2 Kings 14:25; Joshua 3:16; 8:14; 2 Samuel 2:29; 4:7)
(in all these passages the A.V. has "plain");
(Amos 6:14) (A.V.
"wilderness"). This word is found in the Authorized Version only in
(Joshua 18:18) It denotes the hollow depression through which the Jordan
flows from the Lake of Galilee to the Dead Sea. It is now called by
the Arabs el-Ghor. But the Ghor is sometimes spoken of as extending
10 miles south of the Dead Sea, and thence to the Gulf of Akabah
on the Red Sea is called the Wady el-Arabah.
